Nobiru Station opened on April 10, 1928 as a station on the Miyagi Electric Railway. On October 23, 1931 the station was renamed Tōhoku Suma Station (東北須磨駅?). The Miyagi Electric Railway was nationalized on May 1, 1944, and the station name reverted to its present name. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987. The station was closed from March 11, 2011 due to damage to the line associated with the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, and services have been replaced by a provisional Bus Rapid Transit service. The station is scheduled to be reopened in 2015. [1]
